Only 1 Week Left to Plant Trees through the GRCA in Celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday

Have you considered planting trees on your property? If so, the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority can provide assistance. Tree seedlings can now be ordered through the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority until March 3, 2017. This can be done through an easy to use and informative selection catalogue and order form. There is a minimum order of 25 seedlings, with increments of 25 seedlings per species. Seedlings costs range from $0.55 to $2.50 each.

When it comes to planting the seedlings, landowners can plant the seedlings themselves or have them planted through the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority’s Tree Planting Program. Funding is also available to assist a tree planting project through the Clean Water – Healthy Land Financial Assistance Program.

Consider celebrating Canada’s 150th Birthday with family and friends with the planting of 150 native trees that represents Ontario’s Forests and Official Trees. To order your package for $150.00, please fill out the order form and return by March 3, 2017.
